Definitely good opportunity for us to bounce back: Pooran

Ahead of the clash against Bangladesh, Nicholas Pooran insisted that it is a good opportunity for Windies to bounce back

Despite big hopes from the West Indies to live up to their expectations of being a T20 giant, the Kieron Pollard-led side have left a bitter taste in the mouth of the fans. Two losses in a row, where they were below the mark with the bat has left them in a risky position, in lieu with qualification to the next stage of the competition.

However, Nicholas Pooran states that the clash against Bangladesh is a good opportunity for the Men in Maroon to bounce back from their poor form. He also added that it is a do-or-die game for them and insisted that they would be on the winning side. 

"I definitely think it's a good opportunity for us to bounce back. It's just another game of cricket. Anyone can win. But... it's a do-or-die game for us. And we believe that we're going to be successful tomorrow," Pooran told reporters, stated India Today.

"We're not sure how Sharjah is going to play tomorrow. But our focus is not on the small boundaries, to be honest," he added.

Pooran also highlighted that while the process is intact, they have failed to execute their skills in the clash against England and South Africa. The southpaw reckoned that if they took care of the execution, the result will follow. 

"We just want to execute our skills. And once we can do that, then the results can take care of itself.

"If you can accept that we weren't good on the first two games, I think as batsmen, as a team, we already accepted that we didn't come to the party. And we're looking forward to moving forward and, hopefully, we can do much better.”

West Indies take on Bangladesh in an all-important clash for both the sides, who have lost their opening two games in the competition.
